Author Erica Schwarz


  • 1 c + 2 T all purpose flour
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 3 T cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c shortening or unsalted butter softened
  • 6 T sugar
  • 6 T light brown sugar
  • 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 c Nutella spread
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 9.9 oz bag White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms (can substitute other flavor M&Ms or white chocolate morsels)
  • 1/2 c Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate morsels


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients – the flour, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder.
  3. Separately in a large mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients – the shortening, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, Nutella, and egg.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to incorporate. Add the walnuts, M&Ms, and chocolate morsels.
  5. Using 2 spoons or a cookie scoop, scoop out ~1½-in mounds onto a large baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes until just toasted around the edges. Take cookies out of the oven and let them cool 2 minutes, then gently transfer them to a cooking rack so they can cool completely.
